Ha! Hey, so if the one you mentioned is done well, and easily pointed out (ie, give the link?), I'd love to see it...as you can tell, this sorta thing is completely new to me. I still get excited about using wiki and thinking "whoa! this is soooo cool!"

I have not actually seen one for the band or for that matter any band. I actually see these a lot at work. I have seen them used to show scientific impact of a researcher by showing their direct connections (co-authors on papers) and then the secondary connections. I also see them used to describe systems biology data. Usually as the output of some genomics or proteomics experiment to demonstrate the hubs that connect cellular pathways to offer an explanation of how the altered expression of one gene could have effects on seemingly diverse cellular events.

Hmm, that sounds pretty dorky.

How about dem Saints?

Oh, it's like an Eigenfactor or one of those maps showing which papers are frequently cited together or have supposedly influenced other papers etc.

Ah, I gotcha--yeah, that kinda stuff is really cool (dorky? nerdy? we got that covered!)...I like doing them for "lineage" assessments of academics/institutions (ie, seeing who was a student of whom, which institution served as a hub for a lineage of workers, etc.).

Birds of feather, dork together..."dork" the verb. But watch out, if you do much more of this Healy might call you out for appearing "overly indulgent with dorks" perhaps even favoring same dork marriage...

There's a town just a few miles from me called Dorking. Maybe we should all move there...

Ha! Of course, we may have to be careful about having all of us in one place at the same time...it could upset the entire Forum Space Time Continuum.

I guess that would be okay as along as dorking is not an activity along the lines of "wonsing the troll." (still makes me chuckle).

Interesting story CBell, although I was simply referring to a comment that Rob made here some time ago when you were using the name Wonsing. He wrote wonsing the troll and then commented on how that sounded like an unholy action as opposed to name. I found it amusing.
